How Will Virginia Gov. Northam Enforce His Stay-at-Home Order to Combat Wuhan Virus Spread?

Townhall: Well, it’s official. Virginia is on lockdown. It already unofficially was, but now Gov. Ralph Northam has made it an official order. It is in effect until Jun 10 or unless otherwise amended. There is still a ban on outdoor gatherings of 10 people or more. Gov. Northam said trips to the bank, the grocery store, medical assistance, or seeking emergency help were the only reasons why one should go outside. He urges Virginians to do their part in helping the state contain the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. As for enforcement, it was a waffled answer. Those violating the 10 people or more rule at public gatherings could be facing class I misdemeanor charges. Overall, there isn’t much teeth to this order. In Maryland, it’s a crime that comes with a $5,000 fine and/or up to a year in jail.

  2. ” Those violating the 10 people or more rule at public gatherings could be facing class I misdemeanor charges.”

    He obviously has the power to set aside the Constitution and the First Amendment which guarantees the right to peaceably assemble.

    And he is eagerly backed by a fear driven population that will eagerly accept it, just so government can keep us safe.

  3. “… or the right of the people peaceably to assemble …”

    No mention of “how many” in my copy.
    So, Northam, by dictat, can void the 1st Amendment to the Constitution?
    Without the consent of the governed? Without Repeal?

    Then can we assume the 13th can be overturned as easily?
    And the 14th?
    How bout the 16th? I wouldn’t bitch about that!

  4. “This Order does not apply to the full suite of family planning services and PROCEDURES…”

    This Governor is mentally ill.

  5. Boy, these Dem Guvs are grabbing power and trying out tyranny with gusto!
    I wonder how long the people will put up with him.

  6. Since people can’t meet personally with their tax accountant does that effectively void the payment of taxes and filing tax returns?

  7. Since the first ten amendments to the Constitution have now been cast aside by the government does that also mean that the second ten amendments are also null and void?

  8. Break the windows.

    And how is ol’ Ralphie boy going to enforce his diktat? White robes and hoods, burning crosses on the lawn?

  9. Americans need to educate themselves about jury nullification. We need to put it into action. I’ve done it and it felt great screwing over the crooked federal prosecutor who thought he had a slam dunk case. It is a very powerful weapon against unjust officials and laws. The American people have the final say so in all trials. It is our duty to sit in judgement of the law itself and not just the accused. If a person is being prosecuted under an unjust law, the jury has the power and duty to find that person innocent regardless of the law used to prosecute them.

  10. “…$5,000 fine and/or up to a year in jail.” No teeth? That’s pretty harsh for someone who yesterday was an ordinary American going about his freedom to pursue happiness.

  11. Glad I don’t live in Virginia, with coonman as governor and a bunch of commies in the legislature. I get Inslee and a bunch of commies instead. Only a person with no private sector experience would see no problem in pretty nearly stopping commerce and production for three months or so…

  12. I think he should start by shooting gun owners. That’ll DEFINITELY get the response he DESPERATELY needs. 🙃
